When you start getting that feeling that it’s a real deal now? I went to family dinner this weekend and my aunt asked me am I feeling nervous? That get me thinking because I have been engaged for 3 months now, get most stuff done and planned. Yet, I’m still very calm. I know I’m getting married in 8 months but it feels so far away…. feel like it won’t happen until next year or something.
What about you girls? Are you feeling nervous yet?

I am less than 2 months away and I am not at all nervous. It sounds like you are in the “lull” period where everything major is planned and you cannot do much more until you are 2-3 months out. I also felt like my wedding seemed so far away at one point but now it seems like the days are clicking away quickly.

I am getting married in exactly two weeks and I just now started to get nervous! I have a lot oflast minute crap going on. Taking a stepback through the whole process and realizing that at the end of the day all that matters is my dress is awesome, he will look like a stud, and I get to marry my best friend. :). Don’t be worried about when you “should” get nervous. Just be excited!

@gpiglet: Yeah, you still have a long ways to go but it will be here before you know it! I get nervous every once in a while. Within the last 2 or 3 months it is happening more and more. We are a little over a month away and I go from stress to nervous to happy and excited!
You may not even feel nervous at all 🙂 Some brides don’t!

10-15 minutes before I walked down the aisle.

yeah, my FI and I are relatively reserve and calm, especially him. We both agreed that it hasn’t hit us yet. We don’t feel our relationship significally changed after our engagement beside we try to cut back expensive and saving every dollar within reason.
I can vision our wedding will turn out to be a fun day with friends and family instead of an emotional wedding. The only emotional part maybe the three thank you speech that I will make for my parents and my aunt who I want to make a special thank you speech to them.

@gpiglet: I didn’t get nervous until the night before. Everything was over, but I realized I forgot panties for the day of and my MOH had to drive me to Walmart, and as I was walking down the hotel steps, I had a mini-moment of “omg, can I be with one person for the rest of my life?” Luckily I have a wonderful BFF/MOH because she told me I was just freaking out because I didn’t have panties, lol.
The only other time I had it was about 10 minutes before the aisle walk because I didn’t want to fall, and I knew all eyes were on me.

I only got nervous just before I walked down the aisle. But I was stressed the last 2 weeks before the wedding.

I have just under 3 weeks left to go and I’m still not nervous.

It’s so cute to read all your comment. I have a friend told me everything was fine until the very last moment she was about to sign the paper. Her mind was like “is this it? damn, I’m married and not valueble in the market anymore”

I didn’t get nervous until we were in line, and the processional music started playing!

I have about 6 weeks until my wedding and I still feel like it’s so far away. And then I look at a calendar and am reminded that it’s actually pretty close. I’m at that point where I’m done with all the planning…I just want to the day to come already! The only time I get nervous is when I think about walking down the aisle and standing in front of all our guests. I’m an introverted person and the idea of being in the spotlight like that makes my stomach turn a little bit. But the overall excitment I have for the wedding completely outweighs any of the negative anxiety.

I’m totally nervous.
I’ve been single-and-proud for 20 years. Being with one man for the rest of my life? Totally wack! Awesome, but… WACK! Yes, I’m nervous.

Congrats! 8 months is close! It will go fast – but in a good way! 🙂
We had ~6 months from “Will you?” to “I do.” Can’t say that I ever felt nervous, though. Sometimes, even now being married, it doesn’t seem like the ‘real deal’ like we’re actually married…it just seems right. 🙂

I never felt nervous.
I knew I was marrying the one God intended for me, and I have no doubt that he will be the man standing next to me in 50yrs+. Everyday I love him more, and with more depth.
